January 14, 2016 Sandhill Cranes

I went up to the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge near Dayton, TN to photograph Sandhill Cranes. Thousand of these birds stop here on their migratory route beginning around mid November and usually staying till around February. The viewing area is a good site to catch birds flying in and out, and I have found that late afternoon has good lighting and a lot of activity. These were shot with a Canon 7D Mark II and Canon 100-400L IS II lens.
